I am trying to learn German and struggling with some aspects of pronunciation.
I have heard the word "Schnee" pronounced here and elsewhere, and it sounds to me like it's pronounced /ʃniː/. However, the transcriptions I have seen change the vowel, making it /ʃneː/. Also, I have been told that the second way is correct. Am I simply hearing the vowel wrong? Does this differ by dialect? Is it something else?
